DAVIS, CA -- Dr. Paul Moller, President of Moller International, Inc. (OTC:MLER), and the Moller M400 Skycar are going to be on the CBS 60 Minutes program Sunday, April 17, 2005. The segment entitled "Highway in the Sky" will feature an interview by Bob Simon with Dr. Moller.
This episode of the No. 1 rated TV news magazine highlights the current and projected capabilities of the Moller M400 Skycar, a four-passenger vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft under development by Moller International. Also covered in the segment are the key elements of the transportation infrastructure needed for future "flying cars" from the perspective of recognized government and industry experts.
"This program should provide a great overview of the potential for personal air transportation alternatives that are coming in the not-too-distant future," said Paul Moller. "I think that many people are unaware of how close this technology is to being realized, and this 60 Minutes program is going to be one that everyone who has ever been stuck in traffic is going to want to watch."
The 60 Minutes interview is the latest program to showcase the Skycar. TV and printed media have frequently featured the Skycar and its persevering inventor, Dr. Paul Moller. In addition the Skycar has been a popular attraction at key events around the world. The M200M, a 2-passenger VTOL concept car developed by Moller International, is scheduled to be on display this summer at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago (www.msichicago.org) from May 12 to June 20 and at the WIRED NextFest exposition at Chicago's Navy Pier from June 24-26, 2005.
